This week, The Atlantic Council in Turkey focused on the implications of the Russia-Ukraine conflict as a NATO member while balancing complex ties with both sides. The Middle East Programs invited Barak Ravid to revisit the Abraham Accords, how it came to be, its legacy for the Middle East, and impact on US-Israel relations. Finally, the Global Energy Center invited Suzanne Singer to discuss advancing affordable, reliable and clean energy access for Indigenous people across the Navajo Nation.
